ONLINE SESSION TWO - Drawing Without Fear with Kate Hanlon

FOUR-WEEK CLASS
Tuesdays,  July 14, 21, 28, August 4
4pm-6pm

ARTIST: Kate Hanlon

MEDIUM: charcoal, graphite, pens, colored pencils, pastels, etc.

Prerequisite: SESSION ONE of Drawing Without Fear with Kate Hanlon

Virtual weekly online class on Tuesdays starting July 14

A real-time class through Zoom video meeting that starts at 4:00 pm 

Kate will send an invitation in advance of join the ZOOM meeting/class and she will be there live during your two-hour online class.

Every drawing is a self-portrait of its maker, a record of a temperament, mood, and response to the world that is as unique as a signature. Working where we are, for fun, and without fear, we’ll engage our sense of curiosity and explore a range of approaches to drawing as a process. Beginning with simple mark-making, we’ll progress to working from still life elements, interior and exterior views, imagination, and memory. Our focus will be less on traditional rendering, and more on intuitive, individual interpretations of our subjects. Students will be encouraged to keep a daily journal as well as complete homework assignments.

Kate will email weekly homework assignments in the form of a written assignment, a video demonstration, and a page of inspiring examples; and you will meet weekly for discussion in a supportive environment on Zoom.  Class will meet online via ZOOM preferably on your computer. An iPad and smartphone can also be used. You will need to download the Zoom app. Kate will send an invitation in advance to join the ZOOM class. Instructions for using Zoom will be sent prior to the first class.

ONLINE FIVE DAY Sketching with Pen & Ink with Emily Passman

ONLINE ZOOM CLASS

Sketching with Pen & Ink

Medium: Watercolor and Ink

Instructor: Emily Passman

This workshop will take advantage of painting while still at home!  Each day, the group will paint online together and learn the art of sketching using pen and ink in combination with watercolor.  Using a quality sketchbook, the combination of ink and watercolor is inspiring and satisfying.  You will learn how to capture the essence of a still life...sitting indoors or out and let go of the pressure to be precise.  Learn different drawing techniques and approaches for measuring and improving perspective.  Whether you are sitting quietly on a bench in your garden or inside your home next to the window, the art of sketching is a great way to slow down, record an experience, and practice being in the moment.  It’s a perfect skill for artists to stay safe and make art!

A place can be: In nature, from your travels, or your own backyard or local place that holds significance to you.

The remaining time will be spent painting on your own and will include individual consults scheduled through out the day with each student for more in depth focus.

This format gives you a large block of time in the middle to paint on your own but receive individual guidance as needed.

Each student will receive an individualized plan of study for the week.

Prior to the start of class students will email Marjorie examples of your work so that I can assess each person’s needs and develop a plan of focus..

10 AM- 11:30AM :1.5 hour demo of watercolor concepts/strategies and discussion of work in progress and student goals for the week.

11:30- 2 Painting on your own and individual consults to be scheduled at the start of the day.

1 group meeting at the end of the day to review works in progress.

Lessons will address the collective needs of the group and will focus on: 

-How to think about seeing, mixing, and placing color to amplify the sense of place.

-How to adjust your composition by addressing issues of scale and how to translate all this into an expressive watercolor.

-transparent layering and watercolor technique

This fun workshop offers the opportunity to learn traditional techniques of design, carving, and printing, as well as the chance to expand upon the tradition with creative inking and printing options, to create contemporary interpretations of the medium. Participants will leave with a number of prints, and with newfound skills and appreciation of the process.

10:00am – 1:00pm

Virtual weekly online class

ALL LEVELS WELCOME

This class will meet ONLINE via ZOOM MEETING.  Emily will send an invitation in advance of join the ZOOM meeting/class and she will be there live during your three-hour online class.

Alla prima is the Italian word for "at one time". Adding a sense of immediacy and freshness to your painting is what we will focus on in this class using either oil or acrylic. Painting "Alla prima" allows the artist to spend more of energy "seeing" the subject, and painting the essence of it without feeling stuck on the details. In this class, we will work on learning techniques that promote a looser feeling in the brushstrokes and overall mood of the pieces we create. We’ll work on a series of small drawings and color "etudes" (studies”). Emphasis will be on creating a series relating one subject, then moving to another. We will focus on landscape, interiors, tablescapes, small objects, and still lifes. The format of the class will be a combination of demos, discussions, ‘at-easel’ time, and the sharing of ones work.

Cut. Paste. Construct. The Figure. 

ONLINE A Real-Time Class with Live Model Through Zoom Video Meeting

with NANCY GRUSKIN

Medium:  Collage & 3D Paper and Cardboard Constructions

SIX-WEEK CLASS

Wednesdays, 1 pm to 4 pm

October 7 - November 11, 2020

A REAL-TIME CLASS WITH LIVE MODEL THROUGH ZOOM VIDEO MEETING.

Working from a clothed model posing live on Zoom, we will make cut-paper and cut-cardboard collages and paper and cardboard constructions of the figure.  Prior to each meeting with the model, the instructor will introduce the week’s exercises by email and give a detailed list of supplies needed for the session (see the supply list linked below for an overview).  At the beginning of each live model session, the instructor will briefly review the exercises for the day before turning the screen over to the model, who will hold short and long poses, depending on the exercises for that day.  Exercises will encourage you to focus on shape and to experiment with materials and color.  In addition to the sessions with the model, this class will include two meetings to “check in” and discuss the work made in previous weeks.  Slideshows of the work of modern and contemporary artists will supplement the meetings.  This class is intended as a springboard for your own artistic practice, rather than as an introduction to anatomy or a specific method of working; however, beginners are welcomed and encouraged!  A computer, laptop, or large-screen tablet is advisable for Zoom meetings, as adequately viewing the model on a smartphone screen poses a challenge. 

An additional model fee of $25 will be paid to the model directly. 

The class schedule is as follows:

Date:   10/7: Speed collages with the model (short poses and limited “palette” of collage papers).

Date:   10/14: Portrait collages with the model (learning to edit and simplify).

Date:   10/21: Group discussion of work made during weeks 1 and 2.

Date:  10/28: Paper & cardboard collages with the model (breaking out of the rectangle).

Date:   11/4: Paper & cardboard constructions with the model (thinking in three dimensions).

Date:   11/11: Group discussion of work made during weeks 4 and 5.

ONLINE (NEW DATES)- Watercolor for Absolute Beginners with Marjorie Glick

This is an on-line class with Marjorie Glick

The schedule will be 10 am - 12noon each day with a two-hour break and resume class on Zoom from 2:00 pm-4:00 pm

Unlike most watercolor workshops, this one will start at the very beginning!

This online workshop is geared toward the absolute beginner and will prepare you for future watercolor classes. We will begin with learning the basic techniques of color mixing, wash, wet into wet, edge shading, and building an image using transparent layering. You will also develop an understanding and appreciation of how water is used in watercolor. Water is everything: it is used to create paint movement, spontaneous expression as well as control, and transparency. Learn how to use value to build up an image spatially, and with light and shadow.

Note: If you are not a beginner, you are welcome to take this class as a refresher course but we will start at the beginning with basics.
